Low-Density Wigs

This is perfect with people for naturally thin hair and who are trying to get away with no one noticing they recently switched to a wig. Low-density wigs are also a great, natural-looking option for older women as hair naturally thins with age.

If you are planning to wear your wig for long periods of time, a low-density wig is a good choice as it is lighter and provides more air to your scalp.

High-Density Wigs

Extremely High-density wigs are popular in theater and people looking for a very glamorous hairstyle. Unfortunately with high-density wigs are heavier and provide less airflow to your scalp.
